may not cave to major league baseball. the talks between rodriguez and mlb, they've stalled with a rod resisting the length of that suspension and the fact that it may cost him the portion of the $100 million that's still left on his contract. a rod came to the negotiating table after mlb said it was considering a lifetime ban. he said he had no connection to the biogenesis plan. he's expected to return to the field for a rehab game for the trenton thunder. >>> highlights, red sox coming off a 15 inning walk off win. last night they were down by five runs going into the ninth against the mariners. impossible? not in boston. sox would load the bases for shane victorino. look at that. he punches through the second baseline. two runs later, jonny gomes will tie the game with a base hit up the middle. bases loaded, still one out, daniel nava had a chance to win it. >> nava hits it in the air to center field. deep and far and that ball's going to win and be the red sox have an amazing come-from-behind victory in what turns out to be a magical night for fenway. >> the red sox have a major le

, alex rodriguez, who will likely be punched out by the mlb for 214 games. but the story doesn't end there. it appears a-rod will appeal his suspension, allowing him to continue playing during that process. that means we're probably in for an extra innings affair here, and he's in chicago today expecting to be in the lineup, even with the longest non-lifetime ban in baseball's history anning over his head because, as many yankees fans have grown accustomed to in these last few years, it appears a-rod plans on going down swinging. katy tur is in chicago. the yankees will be back in the bronx later this weekend. will a-rod? >> reporter: i don't know. that's the big question. a lot of fans say they do want him to come back. the yankees are struggling. they don't have jeter right now. they need a big name in there to help them along. there are others who say he's a cheater, that he should get thrown out. a-rod doesn't have a lot of love even out here. he, in some respects, hasn't been clenched when he's needed to be. he hasn't been so lovable. in a lot of ways, he's a player people love

rodriguez yet. we are awaiting a release from major league baseball. mlb source tells him there will be a release and no presser. it looks like they are leaning to a couple of releases and a lot of speculation that a rod will be suspended from this year and the entirity of 2014. and the commissioner could ban him for life under the collective bargaining agreement. it could be a major stand off here and we await the major developments. >> this is a shocking scene in california. a power plant implosion goes terribly wrong. and hundreds of people had gathered in bakersville to watch the demolition and flying snap nel injured some. >> they would implode this thing and a huge crowd gathered to see it and people were camping out overnight to make sure they had front row seats and they set up a security perimeter around the plant and the fire department pushed it back further to be safe. it was not far enough. and remember, in an implosion, things are supposed to fall in and listen to the implosion and watch the shrapnel fly. looking at the shrapnel. it is difficult to see. the p
ongoing between rodriguez and the mlb to reach a deal for a-rod to avoid a possible lifetime ban from baseball. is like hammering. riding against the wind. uphill. every day. we make money on saddles and tubes. but not on bikes. my margins are thinner than these tires. anything that gives me some breathing room makes a difference. membership helps make the most of your cashflow. i'm nelson gutierrez of strictly bicycles and my money works as hard as i do. this is what membership is. this is what membership does. okay, a? b? b. a? that's a great choice. let me show you some faucets to go along with that. with the latest styles and guaranteed low prices, you can turn the bath you have into the bath you want. good choice. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, this abbey vanity combo is a special buy. just $299. that's a good thing, but it doesn't cover everything. onbo 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized med

for a suspension that could last until he's nearly 40 or mlb will move to ban him for life. in this week's "sports illustrated" cover, in the last days of a rod, the yankee slugger said, quote, i'm not giving up. i have tremendous faith. hopefully there's a couple more chapters in this book. i have faith. perhaps faith in arbitration. b.j.schecter is executive editor for "sports illustrated." thanks for coming on the program. >> thanks for having me. >> i want to say something before i ask you a question. i'll not very shocked by a rod. a rod was not very loved to the fans. he was number two to griffey. more people remember him for the 2004, the worst moment in world series history where he tried to slap bronson arroyo's arm. we put this onus on a rod, a rod, a rod. he was supposed to be the best ever. i don't think anyone ever grew up loving a rod. what about the other all stars that are involved in this? johnny peralta, nelson cruz? this on the back of ryan braun's suspension for the rest of the year, cabrera from the padres. are we not paying enough attention with all of these all-stars getting
mlb suspension comes down by then. nbc's ron mott has been tracking all of this in new york. do we expect the suspension to come down? i know his lawyers said they were going to fight anything. are they trying to work out a deal? >> that's the rumorumor, that they're trying to work out a deal. last night, some of the reports were that both sides have essentially walked away from one another because they're so far away from a deal. no one really knows. i think we need one of those msnbc clocks to show lounge this a-rod watch has gone on. i think i'm on day nine here. essentially, it boils down to this, whether he will accept a suspension that the league is going to push for, a pretty substantial suspension, or if he doesn't, they can't work out a deal, there are reports that the commissioner is ready to issue this lifetime ban, which will keep a-rod off the field indefinitely. he, of course, can appeal that. no one knows for sure. what we know for sure is he's scheduled to play tonight in trenton, new jersey, for the thunder, a aa team down there, a yankee organization. presumably,
there for the statement from michael wiener, the head of the mlb after the suspension was doled out where he said a-rod was not treated fairly. they think bud selig went out of his power here. they are going to go out there and vehemently fight for alex rodriguez. that's what it comes down to. >> okay. i like bud selig. the first time the guy used drugs, he broke the rules. he got caught. then he said he wouldn't do it again. then he got caught doing it again. then he tried to cover it up, and now he is finally caught, and now he is appealing. why would you take his side? why would anybody take his side unless they were a union shop steward. >> in this case, that's the case. the union shop steward does his job. does anybody who's objective take a-rod's side? >> it's not a matter of taking alex rodriguez's side. chris, you understand this. it's due process. he is due rights. he was not going to take the medicine that major league baseball was doling out, swallow it and in essence ending his career. you don't think he's coming out after being out of baseball for two years at 39, soon to be 40 and say
. >> joining me now by phone mlb baseball's peter gammons. what i found interesting talking to negro league players and also modern players, if there's one sea change it's that players are more outspoken about what's going on. >> absolutely, chuck. if you go, not following relationship between major league baseball and players' association for a long time, going back to marvin biller, roberts found him, what they had to battle through against baseball ownership. i understand that. became such a lightning rod in the late '90s, early part of this century. the union which was very much based in the national labor relations board fought ideas of any testing whatsoever. what's happened is -- i don't know how much the union is going to be ruptured, but the sea change is players have risen and said the union hurt us in many ways because it had an uneven playing field. we want it leveled. they have been so outspoken. michael weiner running the has responded very strongly with them. a-rod is a little different case because there is that feeling that maybe bud selig went overboard on rodriguez but th
with the relationship side of it. you see mlb and nfl and the leagues producing a ton of content. the next frontier is how to take that digital relationship to a deeper level. >> what's interesting to me is we heard about your relationship with the packers. i know of other former colleagues of yours with other relationships with other sports teams that are doing this. the devils experiment two years ago, i remember talking to mike, devils have since changed hands, but it did increase ticket -- for some places, they had a single game ticket issue. and they were trying to get that because hockey's so expensive. the impact of this is pretty fast. because there's little know-how, is that fair to say? >> i think it's interesting that people who care so much about, like, the number of people showing up for the game in aggregate and they have a sense of all those numbers of season ticket holders don't have a great sense of the individual person. >> they don't know who the people are. >> right. having a more finely segmented strategy as the devils go down that road and understanding that, you know, joe is
